With the San Antonio Spurs sitting at two wins and one loss on the season, point guard Tony Parker spoke about the start to the season on his French radio show and also weighed in on Nicolas Batum's late three pointer which gave him a triple-double as the Blazers handed the Spurs their first lost of the season.no comments
In an effort to hopefully lengthen his career, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili decided against playing in international play over the summer after suffering nagging injuries that affected him, especially in the NBA Finals where it seemed like Ginobili was on his last legs.
It seemed chances were slim that he’d consider playing with Argentina in the World Cup in Spain, but he said back in July and reiterated recently to Argentinean site TyCSports there is definitely a possibility of him returning to the national team when they compete in Spain.no comments
It didn't take long until a member of the San Antonio Spurs got hit with a flop warning and it's not the guard you might be thinking of.
Backup point guard Patty Mills got the warning for an apparent flop during the second game of the season against the Los Angeles Lakers.
The play happened during the 4th quarter with under 12 minutes to go when Jordan Hill, Lakers forward/center, drove in and kicked out when the defense collapsed.no comments
At 37-years old, one would think San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan would be a shell of his former self and show dramatic signs of slowing down in his NBA career. Well think again.
Duncan has showed no signs of slowing down and continues to be one of the premier big men in the NBA but what has been his secret? Staying in shape? Watching what he eats? Sure, all of that plays a huge part in his longevity but maybe Duncan has been taking trips back in time.
While at the recent Alamo City Comic convention, the DeLorean time machine from the movie "Back to the Future" was on hand for fans to snap pictures and Duncan was there with his kids to soak in the fun and hop into the DeLorean time machine.no comments
There is no doubt a lot of point guards in the league today that many owners, and analysts would love to be apart and lead their teams or even start their team with. NBA Analyst Shaquille O'Neal on NBA TV was asked the simple question whom he thought is the best point guard in the league today and whom he would take to start his team.
O'Neal in the video went on to state that his first choice of course would be LeBron James but quickly stated though he is not a point guard he would go with Tony Parker whom he dubbed as the same time player as James.no comments
In the past, accomplishing a triple-double was something that deserved to be celebrated, but as in real life there is a right and wrong way to go after this achievement. No player wants their triple double to be tainted in any way.
Unfortunately Nic Batum focus on getting that elusive triple double took precedence over his common sense.
At the end of this weekend’s Portland Trailblazer and San Antonio Spurs match up, Nic Batum put up a three-point shot (which went in) with 9.0 seconds left on the clock and his team leading by seven points. And it seems in the following photo, Tim Duncan was not amused.no comments
For you sneaker-heads out there this piece is just for you. Like those growing up idealizing and wanting a pair of the best basketball shoes made, ones that do come to mind are made by the best player of all time, Michael Jordan. Though the shoes are pricey, still getting your hands on one pair made you feel elite. Oh, was that just me?
For Spurs Forward Kawhi Leonard, in his first two seasons, he has been wearing Jordan's and as it was reported on November 2nd, Leonard and Nike are working on a deal that will ink Leonard to the Jordan Brand Family.no comments
We will be tracking Kawhi Leonard all season long here at Project Spurs.
You can expect a specially dedicated highlight reel following every game specifically for one of the most exciting players in San Antonio Spurs history. Stay tuned all season long to relive every dunk and moment that Kawhi makes on his way to becoming the next cornerstone of the Spurs franchise.
Here are the Kawhi-Lights from last night against the Blazers which resulted in a 115-105 loss for the Spurs.
When an NBA team allows their opponent to score 29, 32, and 33 points in three consecutive quarters, the result usually isn’t good.
Such was the case Saturday as the San Antonio Spurs suffered their first regular season loss at the hands of the Portland Trailblazers 115-105 in a game where defensive stops were rare and there were plenty of scoring opportunities.
Here’s the rundown of the game where Portland had six players finish in double-figures, the Spurs got a productive Tim Duncan back, and they saw a glimpse of what Marco Belinelli can do when it matters most.no comments
